Mr B's review

In this heart-warming tale we follow Yanka, a young girl who was found abandoned in a bear cave and stands out from everyone else in her village. Out in the Snow Forest Yanka sets to uncovering the truth about her family, desperate to find out where she truly belongs. Russian fairytales are interwoven throughout and create the perfect backdrop for this magical and mysterious adventure. This is a story absolutely brimming with memorable characters, love and friendships.

Description

They call me Yanka the Bear. Not because of where I was found – only a few people know about that. They call me Yanka the Bear because I am so big and strong.

Found abandoned in a bear cave as a baby, Yanka has always wondered about where she is from. She tries to ignore the strange whispers and looks from the villagers, wishing she was as strong on the inside as she is on the outside. But, when she has to flee her house, looking for answers about who she really is, a journey far beyond one that she ever imagined begins: from icy rivers to smouldering mountains meeting an ever-growing herd of extraordinary friends along the way.

Interwoven with traditional stories of bears, princesses and dragons, Yanka’s journey is a gorgeously lyrical adventure from the best-selling author of The House With Chicken Legs.
